“Behind every successful man there is a woman,” we often hear the saying. Does the statement really apply to every successful man? We cannot say for sure for all the people, but there is some celebrity who believes the statement. Among such celebrities, Michael Chiklis is a common name.
Actor Michael Chiklis, best known as LAPD Detective for his role on the FX police drama The Shield. On his every success, he always gives credit to his lovely wife. It makes us believe that Michael has a happy married life. So, who is the luckiest lady to have such a husband?
Scroll down to know the married life of Chiklis with his wife:
Michael Chiklis: Married for 25 Years with a Lovely Wife!

The romantic journey of the couple started when they met each other at a party. Michael had an injury at the time, and he attended the party only because his friends insisted him. Chiklis now says that he is in great debt to his friends for making him come to the party. Michael can’t imagine life without his wife together, right now. Isn’t he a sweet husband?
Michael gives credit to his wife for most of his movie role saying how she inspired him to do it. In an interview with THE OCR on January 24, 2013, when asked about how understanding his wife is, he answered:
“Yes. She had tremendous faith in me. I knew what I could do. But it was just a matter of getting the right vehicle. I don’t know if it was kismet, or just putting it out there, but the fates conspired to put “The Shield” on my desk six months later.”
Michael and Michelle still live together, and there is no any sign of dispute in their relationship. We hope they will be together supporting each other till the very last moment of their lives.
